Join us at SMM Hamburg
After a two year absence the marine industry’s premier trade show is back and we will be there!
When? 6-9 September, 2022
Where? Hamburg Messe
Booth #400 Hall A4
Future proof power solutions enabling zero carbon shipping
During the week, the team will hold a series of presentations on the Green Transition Stage that will illustrate the versatility of our products towards a wide range of applications, from propulsion systems to power generation and DC networks.
Tuesday 6 September, 10:45 am
On Tuesday the Piller HQ team from Germany will be presenting new ways to improve DC Networks and Battery Hybrid Propulsion systems. They will give an overview of current designs, the latest improvements in electrical propulsion systems and future possibilities.
Combining traditional onboard networks with hybrid battery technology the team will also explain how Piller technology can enhance system efficiency and reduce environment impact.
Friday 9 September, 12:30 pm
On Friday, the final day, Bergen Engines will be presenting the latest insights on fuel efficiency and fuel flexibility. The rapid change towards a greener future makes it challenging to predict fuel prices and fuel availability in the years to come. As most ships have a lifetime of 25-30 years, machinery chosen today must be able to operate on the least GHG intensive fuel that is available now and be able to transition to the green fuels as they become available. In this presentation, Kjell Harloff, Head of Sales – Marine in Bergen Engines, will cover the fuel pathways based on Bergen diesel engine and gas engine technology, including experiences from the ongoing research programmes.
Reach out to our experts to schedule your personal meeting today.
We look forward to seeing you there!
